Independent bottler Lorne Mackillop’s 2005 bottling of Caol Ila.  Distilled in February 1990.  Aged 15 years in oak

Mackillop's Choice Caol Ila

cask.  Bottled at 43%.

N: Hint of smoke, peat, butterscotch, apple/pear?

P: Soft, lighter than I expected, def. taste the peat, not much smoke to it, buttery, tongue coating, a little bitter on the tail.

F: Numbing, a little short.

Comments:  A very delicate Caol Ila. Very refined.  You really get a glimpse of the flavors of Caol Ila beyond the smoke.
